• This week's tech pic is from Aaron of Edinboro, PA. Aaron has hooked us up with a serious amount of Folding power.
• Jason Cross has a look at the new Antec Skeleton Case.
• Jason has been a busy boy. He replaced the normal PS3 hard drive with a Solid State Drive and found out that he didn't have to wait so long for his games to load.
• And now for the viewer questions:
We receive a bunch of email asking for specific recommendations on what hardware they can get that will be compatable with their current system. For example, this question from Lawrence in Australia:
I have a question about the Radeon 3870X2 and the 8800 Ultra video cards. I wanted to see which one would be a better choice for my current gaming system which is:
ASUS P5KC motherboard
4GB DDR2 800mhz ram
Intel Core 2 Duo E8500
(Video card not selected yet)
I am not intending to set up a crossfire or SLI system anytime soon and just basically wanted your opinion on those two cards.
We thought it would be good to talk about what you might want to consider when making this kind of decision.
One site you might want to check out for help is 80 PLUS Program.
